Let's make your next event amazing.

Live graphic recording at your event is a great way to grab your audience’s attention and ensure your message is both seen and heard.

As a graphic recorder I work with speakers, facilitators, and groups at conferences, workshops, and events, transforming their messages into beautiful and easy-to-understand visuals. I record and illustrate in real time, synthesising the information as it’s being presented, so you can see stories come to life.

There's plenty more to learn here if you'd like to read on, but if you've got dates you need to run by me and want to start a conversation, the quickest option is to click this button.

Graphic Recording

Graphic recording is visualising ideas and themes in real time, I can work live and large at a wall with my markers or digitally on my iPad, sharing the projection.

Debbie really captured our Sponsor event perfectly, watching it come to life was so great and being able to share that with those who attended and those who missed it was hugely important.

Really admired how quick you are in replying to all my queries. Our lines of communication were open, honest and clear which made the planning process a cinch. I also appreciated the brief you had me fill out, really shows you care about your craft and the messaging your final artwork will portray. Thanks again for your support at our wonderful event and hope to work with you again soon!

Absolutely loved working with Debbie for our two day Symposium last month. From start to finish, communication was seamless and the end product beautiful. We received excellent feedback from attendees on how engaging and spot on Debbie’s graphic recording was, especially for a topic that is complex. Highly recommended!

You were fabulous. I loved your attention to detail when it came to capturing the key themes and messages of the event along with your consideration of materials that reflect the milieu and topic of the conference. I appreciated how responsive you were in the lead up to the event and really look forward to our next event together!

It was a pleasure working with Debbie on our Women Empowering Communities – Deepening the Dialogue in Mental Health Forum event. We were grateful for all your support not just on the day, but in the lead up as we worked through tech. questions and the overall set-up. Both the final canvases and the participant feed-back forms attest to the significant contribution graphic recording made to the day, and bought to life all the presentations without distracting the audience during the event. Reviewing the canvases before concluding the event was a beautiful way to summarise and end the day. We are delighted with the outcome of the event and this wouldn’t have been possible without your support.

If you’re having an event but you haven’t hired Debbie Wood yet, are you even trying to be engaging?! Debbie was such a pro in every way- an amazing graphic recording talent, creative, lovely and had great communication. She went above and beyond what we expected and I can’t imagine holding a conference or lecture event without her now. Since our summit, I’ve been singing Debbie’s praises to everyone who organises similar events. There was simply nothing else we could have asked for- she had thought of everything.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Debbie, not only the lead into the event and her organisation, although on the day her professionalism was first class and the result brilliant.  Debbie really captured our Sponsor event perfectly, watching it come to life was so great and being able to share that with those who attended and those who missed it was hugely important.  The feedback we received from our Sponsors was overwhelmingly positive.  I would absolute recommend working with Debbie to really bring all the hard work leading into and on event day to life and to then be able to share post.  I will certainly use Debbie again in the future.

I have worked with Debbie across the last two years, through successions, funding cliffs and creating a new systemic advocacy department; Social Economic Empowerment Department, where we help our governments create a systemic highway away from disadvantage as quickly as possible, for our complex young families. As you can imagine, this conversation is incredibly complex! Debbie’s graphic illustrations make the complex simple and what might be a ten minute explanation, 30 seconds. In a world that is full of visual learners, our investment into Debbie’s work has accelerated our impact massively. I cant wait for her to tell the next chapter of our story!

Debbie is an expert graphic recorder - she did an amazing job at our recent Communities in Control 2-day conference. Debbie is easy to communicate with and was quick to respond to any queries I had before the conference. I have no hesitation in recommending Debbie to any prospective clients.

Debbie was an incredible addition to our research event. Not only was she professional, with fantastic communication, but her workflow was easy to navigate with great insight into how to get the best from our event. Best of all, the illustration is phenomenal! I highly recommend Debbie and will definitely be using her services again in the future.

Debbie captured our Centre’s 50th birthday celebration through her unique and engaging Graphic Recording style. The images and messages she captured were a wonderful visual way for us to share highlights from the evening with colleagues and friends of the Centre who couldn’t be there. Debbie has an exceptional ability to pull out key themes and messages from an event, and the combination of images and words have provided an important memento for the organisation to keep and reflect on. The timelapse video was also a fantastic addition. We thoroughly recommend Debbie!
